Under the Covers: Ellie Goulding - Mirrors (Justin Timberlake Cover)

Feels Like: Rhye, Banks, Lorde

Miss Goulding let loose her cover of JT's "Mirrors" today, and while it's not much of a departure from the original, it's still pretty great hearing Goulding singing arguably the best pop ballad of the year. Hearing her sing someone else's song also makes you realize how different her vocal inflections are. Every line is given a new angle and the acoustic-backing gives the song a great feel.
